I could do without drinking for a while. This semester I swear I've put on 10lbs of beer fat.

Wow! I can't believe it's been 3 years. It's really cool to kinda have been on this journey with you through conversations on this forum.

Way to go, Turm. That's incredible!

Thanks.
It's been crazy. I still have a lot of work to do. I haven't done any step work in regards to working the 12 step program. I really think and know that will change my life for the better. I truly am a stubborn, big ego, won't ask for help.. but need it bad kind of person.

Progress not perfection.
And I am still alive.

Had no cravings in 3 years which is a miracle.

Good luck with that that's something I have yet to win at smoking and you've done both so far.. booze and smokes..
Woot!

The weight gain and the hangovers are the only things keeping me from drinking much more than I currently do.

Turm, congrats homegirl. Super awesome accomplishment and you should be super proud.

Thank you.
I believe something else is keeping me sobre most of the time.. because it's not normal for me not to be not drunk. I say thank you but I shouldn't because I don't think I'm the one keeping me sobre lol it's a miracle really.
The hardest part is the racing thoughts and keeping busy. This is why Art has saved me.

Thank you.
Gratitude

Congrats, I admire your commitment! It's all you though, you are your higher power! Nothing deserves credit for this other than you wanting to make a change. Don't sell yourself short.

Congratulations. 3 years is a long time.

I have alittle over three years myself. My sobriety has been court imposed but I am greatful to have been humbled. I do not plan to maintain my sobriety after my time in the court system is completed but I have learned a vast amount about myself through working the 12 steps with a trusted friend.

Congrats Turm. Honestly the main reason I've stayed lurking here so long is the Soberiety and Recovery sub forum and all the cool people I've seen on here that struggle with that stuff. Shit's fucking terrifying and alienating and anyone who fights that fight and somehow manages to wins has all my admiration
